The Iranian government on Monday issued a warrant for the arrest of the United States of America, President, Donald Trump.
It also pleaded with the Interpol to assist in detaining Trump for ordering the drone strike that killed a top Iranian general in Baghdad.
Tehran prosecutor, Ali Alqasimehr said Trump and 30 others were involved in the January 3rd strike that killed General Qassem Soleimani.
He said Trump and the others not mentioned will face “murder and terrorism charges”, Aljazeera reports.
Alqasimehr said that the Iranian government would do anything in its power to continue to press for Trump’s prosecution even after he leaves office.
Recall that sometime in January, a US airstrike had killed General Soleimani of the Revolutionary Guard’s expeditionary Quds Force near Baghdad International Airport.
This came after months of incidents raising tensions between the US and Iran.
